What The Papers Say - 28 November

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Today's papers are awash with speculation about Everton's managerial vacancy and start previewing Wednesday night's Premier League clash with West Ham United.

The Daily Mail says former Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has been "invited" to talk to the Toffees about becoming the Club's new manager, with the same paper claiming Martin O'Neill and the agent of Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca have held discussions with Everton's hierarchy.

The Daily Express expects Allardyce to be appointed today - and claims the 63-year-old will bring ex-Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare to Goodison Park as part of his coaching team.

The Guardian also tips ex-England boss Allardyce for the Blues' post and says the Club has given up on its pursuit of Watford's Marco Silva.

A number of papers carry quotes from West Ham's former Everton manager, David Moyes, who is urging David Unsworth to forge a career as a full-time boss. Moyes also insists there will be "no room for sentiment" when he brings his current team to Goodison this week.

The Liverpool Echo provides an overview of Everton's hunt for a new boss, and claims Fonseca would be a "natural" fit for the job.

The local paper also links Besiktas' Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup with a transfer to the Toffees, and says Serie A side Fiorentina are keen on Henry Onyekuru, the Everton striker on loan at Anderlecht.

Another player apparently on the Blues' radar is Charlton Athletic's 20-year-old defender Ezri Konsa, who also interests Arsenal, according to KentLive.
